The grounds - superb. The reception area - amazing. The staff - 5 star professionals. Your journey down plush, newly carpeted corridors a wonderful experience. But:
THE ROOMS - what a let down!! If you're a fan of 15 year old carpets without a single square metre not covered in stains. If you love the smell of damp and drains. If you just can't get enough of 1980's bathrooms, if you love budget mattresses that wore out several years back and walls in that mottled 1970's style then this is the place for you! The bathroom scales, a 1970's museum piece, weighed me at anywhere between 20kgs and 80kgs depending on how I stood on them!! The rooms are a good size, but I'm afraid for me, I expect a 5* hotel to have 5* everything, and not 2*/3*rooms. At £60-£72/night at least it's cheap-ish, but it needs to be. Seriously, do yourself a favour - look elsewhere, or at least ask to see a room before you hand over your hard-earned cash.
I've added photos - judge for yourself. Pity I can't photograph the smell too.More
